Teleste and DNA to complete DNA’s ultra-modern cable network in Southern Finland

May 24, 2017

Teleste, a provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, has revealed that it has completed deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 -compatible network products to a cable network upgrade project started in 2016 by DNA, Finland’s largest cable operator and the leading pay TV provider in both cable and terrestrial networks. The upgrade embraces 1500 cable network sites in Southern Finland and, as the recent capacity tests show, it redeems its promise of reliable, Gigabit-level broadband speeds to DNA’s customers within the region.

“We are focused on ensuring that our customers can enjoy smooth Internet video services also in live environments, and delivering fast and reliable network connections is an elemental part of meeting the target. We are pleased that, together with Teleste, we have been able to deploy the best solution available to bring our cable network customers within the reach of fixed broadband connections that meet their service expectations today, as well as in future,” told Mikko Nurmi, Director, Cable Networks, DNA.

Mastering network service quality from headend to homes

In addition to utilising DOCSIS 3.1 technology for ultra-high broaband speeds, the deployment makes it possible to monitor and control network signal quality remotely throughout the network from headend to homes with Teleste’s CATVisor Argus management software. Working together with Teleste’s intelligent network devices in the field, the software allows the operator to react proactively to any problems that could cause service distruptions.  It also makes it possible to remotely monitor Remote Ingress Switch (RIS) enabled devices  via the system cloud.

“It has been exciting to work with DNA on this project, which has been the the first comprehensive implementation of DOCSIS 3.1 network technology in Finland. As this project shows, the technology really redeems its promise of bringing Gigabit-level broadband speeds for consumers. And what is more, the increased capacity can be further reinforced by taking intelligence deeper into networks to proactive control network disturbances and reduce service outages. This makes it possible for the operator to ensure that the quality of service meets the requirements for seamless connectivity between people, things, and services,” stated Hanno Narjus, SVP of Network Products for Teleste.
